Patrice Pike had planned to spend these last two years woodshedding with her guitarist and co-writer Wayne Sutton developing new material. She had a successful go of being a touring artist traversing the United States in support of her 2013 release “The Calling”, it’s how she made her mark and paid her bills. Little did she know that life would toss her a curveball that had more to do with the real world outside of music that was undeniably life-changing.

Many of us have concrete plans that get altered. Life happens. Sometimes, Death happens. You are presented with an obstacle, or an unplanned responsibility that you rise up to, and it isn’t something you take lightly. You are given choices. Patrice Pike had choices. And she chose to answer her Calling. It was serious business. It was life and death up close and personal.

Patrice has an ongoing residency at The Saxon Pub that is well-attended by her rabid fan base and each Thursday night at 8:00, she plugs into a format that at times can have her playing solo, or with a myriad of loyal players featuring her longtime...



Singing is such incredible therapy

Some of her best friends call Patrice Pike an extroverted introvert; and now back on the road.

By Tom Geddie

Being onstage is an impor­tant part of Pike's life, but not, it turns out, as important as her family.

"Performing was an incred­ible gift to me. I had very little social interaction. But I would get to perform and get to see my friends," said the diminutive Pike, who some of her best friends call an extroverted introvert. "And singing is incredible therapy. Walk into a room and take these really deep breaths and exhale while singing. It's incredibly medicinal at a whole different level."

For the last year, though, she basically stopped touring when her 15-year-old niece was diag­nosed with aplastic anemia, a rare disease caused by exposure to environmental toxins that pre­vents bone marrow from making the white blood cells that strengthen the immune...


Patrice Pike will light you on fire. With nothing more than her guitar and her musical partner in crime, Wayne Sutton seated to her side, Patrice Pike filled the stage at Poor David's Pub in Dallas on Saturday night. In a cropped black tank, colored jeans, and tall boots, Pike is one of those singers whom you simply can't take your eyes (or ears) away.

There's a little Sheryl Crow, a little Fleetwood Mac, a little Edie Brickell, and a little something fairylike that you just can't quite place in this sexy songstress who sings about love lost and found, and a world that is oft times too much with us all.

"There are two kinds of people in this world," Pike said. "People who talk to their exes and people who don't." Truer words were never spoken. It's a simple observation, perhaps, but also a painfully real one. That delineation is telling.

Throughout the evening, she sang music from her life as a solo artist as well as from her days in the band Sister Seven. She did several numbers while sitting on a Cajon, a drum that looks simply like a wooden box that...

The Burton Roadhouse is owned and operated by close friends of Patrice and they are bringing great music to the area. Come on out! Show is at 8 pm with two sets!! “EXUBERENTLY SOULFUL”, MARGARET MOSER, AUSTIN CHRONICLE. Patrice Pike burst on to the music scene as the electric front woman for the seminal Austin jam band Sister Seven. She was honing her creativity as a vocalist and songwriter at Booker T. Washington school for performing and visual arts as well as the legendary music programs at the University of North Texas when she realized all of her mentors were graduating from programs and then trying to make a living on stage and in the studio. She left her entrepreneurial scholarship in the school bank account and started Little Sister that soon became Sister Seven. Soon after she co-wrote and sang Sister Seven’s top 10 Billboard hit “Know What You Mean”. Richard Skanse for Rolling Stone called her “Tina Turner, Bessie Smith, Janis Joplin, and Robert Plant all rolled up into a tiny but explosive package.” e legendary John Fogerty commented about Patrice’s “great voice” also in Rolling Stone and Billboard Magazine has called her, “One of the nest up and coming contemporary Rock Singers in America.” Following the highly publicized industry shake up at Arista Records with Clive Davis’ departure, Sister Seven disbanded and Patrice went on to begin her solo career with her album Fencing Under Fire in the top 10 most added on AAA radio for multiple weeks.
